Engagement: Lauren + Nathan

This shoot took place on a rainy Friday evening in downtown Akron, Ohio. This was my last day in town working and I knew the shoot couldn’t be rescheduled. So with the forecast not looking too promising, I was a tad nervous. Lauren, the bride to be, texted me- “Sooo what’s the back up plan for tonight?” I responded with, “Bring a cute umbrella!” To be honest, I was kinda of joking since I was still in denial it would actually rain during the EXACT hours I needed it not to.

Fast forward to that evening, we started out indoors to be safe. We met at Angel Falls Coffee where Lauren and Nathan had had one of their first dates. These two killed me with their adorableness. I just wanted to eat them up! Also, who doesn’t love a latte while doing a photo shoot?

After this we headed to the world’s (or at least Akron’s) smallest but prettiest little parks. The first 15 minutes we were there the skies were clear…and then the inevitable happened- it started to rain. These two are troopers though! I poked a hole through a trash bag, covered my camera, and Lauren whipped out the most darling umbrella. I never thought I would be so happy it actually DID rain. It created the most magical touch to the photos. Not to mention…light rain + umbrella + happily in love couple = a whole lot of cute. I hope you think so too, cheers!
